"Papers"? No. Just Napolitano's New Driver's License

No surprise at all that Napolitano endorses this.

Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio
chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.

The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver's licenses, or "enhanced driver's licenses."

She doesn't like "REAL ID" because it proves citizenship--no matter her excuse (below). Note that there is no mention of 'citizenship' in the description.

But she DOES like tracking the whereabouts of everyone with a driver's license.

"Enhanced driver's licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it's less elaborate than REAL ID," Napolitano said in a Washington Times report

BS, Janet.

Enhanced driver's licenses have built-in radio chips providing an identifying number or information that can be accessed by a remote reading unit while the license is inside a wallet or purse

THAT'S what the Statists want.

Why doesn't she just admit the goal is: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is what this is all about, the 1st step on the 24/7 control by the government.

Al, sad to say, but many of the steps were put in place by the Patriot Act. The Dems are just going further.

Patriot Act = A few inches
Obama's big brother plan = A mile
